Our good friends at Adventure Orange will once again be hanging at Handmade City for tomorrow’s event. In fact it almost wouldn’t be an event if these ladies were there. Cool DIY divas making things like clothing, toys, jewelry… we love it all! If you haven’t already stopped by their bricks & mortar location you must! They are located in the Village of East Davenport at 2218 East 11th street. You can browse the Adventure Orange Facebook page to see pics of their most recent work and learn about the DIY classes they currently offer.
It should come as no surprise that The Adventure Orange will make it’s third apperance at the upcoming Holiday 2011 event. When we held our first show back in December of 2010 we realized we needed to get The Adventure Orange there, not only because they make amazing handmade items that we knew customers would love, but they also set the tone for our events by producing do it yourself, handmade, quality, unique, local goods! They are also active in the community and support local artists by offering individual and group classes for those who are anxious to learn a new craft. It is this combination that embodies the Handmade City spirit. When we think of HMC and what kind of art/craft we want to help promote The Adventure Orange definitely is one of the first that comes to mind. We are happy yo have them, happy to promote them and happy that so many shoppers will be taking home their creations this Holiday Season!
The Adventure Orange is a D.I.Y. cooperative started in 2007, by Anne Brown. They were located in the heart of Downtown East Moline up until recently and can now be found in the Village of East Davenport selling clothing, fine art, jewelry, furniture, accessories and other wonderful handmade things. (They also have two in-store seamstresses and offer individual and group classes in many craft areas.. Nov’11 class list HERE) We kind of like to call them the Q.C.D.I.Y.Q. or Quad Cities do it yourself queens!

Betty Round is by far one of the most talented ladies I have ever met and she excels in making almost everything & anything. For example she has been busy creating all sorts of fun stuff for our Spring Show… pillows, hats, jewelry, felted goods, upcycled t-shirts and more! To get a sneak peek of some of the items she will have for sale on April 30th read through the Featured Artist interview we just did with her at the end of last month. Cool crafts aside, she is really nice and you will most likely want to be friends with her as soon as you meet! ~ rose
